Include in my post (my disappointment that computational solutions are by trial-and-error).

It would still be an improper test if there are multiple answers. I assume that it would even speed up the solution as each pathway reduces the chances of a rollback.

However - I do have an idea on how to stress-test it! Initialize it so that it cannot be solved. That's as difficult as it gets. If the algorithm doesn't check for an invalid initialization (i.e., pre-violation of rules) then it will always fail. What Fun ! ! ! !
